mecha names

Post by Tachyon » Mon Jan 26, 2004 12:25 am

I was thinking today about the many terms created in different TV shows and games for mecha.

Gundam - mobile suit/mobile armor
Zone of the Enders - orbital frame
SPT Layzner - super powered tracer
5 Star Stories - mortar head

There are lots of others. Can you guys help me complete the list?

Hmmm, actually, I havent heard of mobile worker, mobile vehicle, mobile weapon, nor mobile bits(the Bits from Afterwar X? I think their called G-Bits) in a Gundam... Other than those though, its all good.

Mobile Worker : Worker mecha. It's kind of confuse since there also a "Worker Mobile Suit". Example of Mobile Worker is MWS-19051G D Gundam "First" from manga Double Fake and MW544B Sandhoge from V Gundam.

Mobile Vehicle : Guntank serie.This term is use in SD G Generation F's profile. (And Guntank II from Z Gundam use RMV code.)

Mobile Weapon : UC version of Mobile Doll.(From G-Saviour,CAMW-13 MW-Rai)

And yeah,Mobile Bit mean those G-Bit.

Addition...

Front Mission
Wanzer
Gasaraki
Tactical Armor
Dougram
Combat Armor

And my mistake,second type of mech from Brain Powerd seem to be called Grancher.

Wow....that, um...I think that just about covers all of them. Maybe.

I looked specifically...you even have "Detonator" from Detonator Orgun in there.

How very thorough!
